Defining Craft Quality Theory Framework in Sloyd Education
Constructing a unique craft quality theory for artifact production is an essential part of sloyd teacher students´ research studies during which students are faced with establishing the perspectives of craft methodology for the master‟s thesis. The student‟s craft quality theory construction is based not only on his inherent needs or problems with the product and process but on constructing and testing the theory as a whole. To construct a craft quality theory based on the discipline knowledge of sloyd education, the student shall define the values representing the craft as well as its unseen qualities. The purpose of this article is to describe the perspectives sloyd teacher students (N69) apply to craft quality theory construction in their master‟s theses. The perspectives applicable to constructing a craft quality theory are based on the idea of educational growth towards research-based crafts teachership. The main results constitute the analyses of students‟ craft research tasks and craft quality targets defined as theory constructions. In conclusion, the results are compared to the perspectives in theory construction in the capacity of a craft quality theory framework.
